We need to ask employees of By Miles how satisfied they are with flexible working before we verify the company FlexScore® and compile employee satisfaction ratings

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options By Miles provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure By Miles is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

By Miles has a real and tangible commitment to flexible working, and promoting a healthy culture in general. Feels good to work here.

The attitude towards flexible, hybrid working is generous and built on mutual trust at By Miles.

By Miles is a truly flexible employer and really supported me in finding a shift pattern that worked for us both. I follow a compressed working week which is great for family life and the company offers a brilliant range of other benefits too.

I love working for By Miles as they are so flexible and very fair company - they always offer help if you need it!

Love working with amazing people. I would wish some events/meetings are organized in such way that all departments can participate.

I've changed my hours, days off gone PT and back FT and the company is super supportive. They help me make flexible working, work.

By Miles is incredibly flexible and works with unexpected family situations that pop up, for which I am very grateful.

Not really, I am working with the legends here. the best peeps I've ever met!

We are outcome-focussed so there has never been a question of where or when you work. You come first, so we trust each other to make decisions for the right reason.

Great company, really flexible working from home and office if needed. Workers wellfare are also well looked after.

About us

At By Miles, we are on a mission to make driving fairer. 

Car insurance doesn’t have the best reputation. It’s dull, unfair, expensive and involves far too much unnecessary paperwork! 

We’re changing that. We launched the UK’s first real-time pay-by-mile car insurance policies in 2018, along with a smart driving app, because owning a car should set you free, not tie you down.

It’s probably this attitude that meant we were voted ‘Best Car Insurance Provider of 2021’ for the third year in a row at the Insurance Choice Awards

What we believe in.

We challenge with kindness, making sure everyone feels safe and included. We support each other.

We take time to learn so that we can improve ourselves, our colleagues and our products. We’re not afraid to make mistakes if it gives us the opportunity to grow.

We’re clear in our vision. We’re happy to challenge the status quo if it will help us make things better.

We own up, we don’t blame. We’re humble enough to take feedback on board, and respectful enough to give it. The next big idea could come from anywhere, so everyone’s opinion matters.

We consider before we start, whether that’s interrogating details to save confusion down the line, or getting help from others. We make decisions using data, not opinions, and we use our time wisely, always staying focused on the end goal.

Flexible working at By Miles

At By Miles, we're proud to be a flexible place to work.

Employees are able to work from their chosen location, whether this is their home, the office or somewhere else. We have a hybrid model and have committed to this indefinitely. Our Customer Experience team works shifts so their hours are fixed, but within this, we have people who work flexible shift times and part-time to fit around their lives and commitments as parents, carers and students.

Outside of our Customer Experience team, start and finish times are flexible and based on trust. We have a work from home allowance and have provided unlimited data sim cards to anyone who needs a faster internet connection. Our benefits are fully flexible, and in partnership with Thanks Ben, our employees have a monthly allowance to use how they wish, with options including access to health insurance, gym membership, pension top-up and more. Plus, we're a dog friendly office!

Employees also have a ring-fenced L&D budget, and can use their benefits allowance to top this up. Other benefits include access to well-being support through Spill, and professional coaching once a month with our coaching partner and qualified coach Helen McMillan. Coaching sessions are available to all and do not use any of the benefits allowance.

We have a Real Living Wage Scheme for new parents: anyone taking leave to be with their new child will not earn less than the Real Living Wage for the whole of their leave, regardless of salary or gender, for biological and adopted children. We have paid compassionate leave and parental bereavement leave and offer paid sabbaticals for employees who have worked with us for at least 3 years.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

Our mission is to make employment fairer.   

We don’t just say we’re inclusive and diverse, we actively put it into practice. It’s an ongoing commitment that we’re always looking to improve on. 

We promote equity, inclusion and diversity in the workplace, always striving to do better and make our actions meet our intentions.

We want to ensure that every individual has a voice, feels part of our community and has the freedom to be themselves, whilst being given the support they need
